While out visiting some beautiful blogs..my heart skipped a beat here..
I found them so pretty I had to try..
I had arugula.. cream cheese,ricotta and roasted red peppers~
They were very fun to make~
Just the thing w/ a side salad~Perfect little first course meal..
In her recipe..I wonder if an egg yolk was omitted..I added a splash of vinegar..and my dough held together well..no egg yolk..But in her previous dough/tart recipes she adds a yolk..You blind bake then finish baking the crusts(that's what I did) in small bottomless metal rings.
The Red pepper mousse type filling was equal parts Ricotta..and cream cheese(125grams).. and 2 roasted red peppers,some salt and piment d'espelette that you blend together then pipe into cooled crusts~
A lovely little tart.Feel free to kick up the seasonings a touch..the deeper the flavor of your peppers the better the tart~
Her Blog is exquisite..do go visit.I have now added her to my list of visited blogs~
I think I could just go to her blog.. grab a table, be seated, and enjoy.
A footnote..The recipe.. as I found it..but translated..

For the dough~:

75 g butter
One handful of arugula or basil finely chopped
